Subject: Tremendous Dark Star.
Worth the ticket for that alone.
Subject: Feeling groovy
yes they were
five stars for that alone
Subject: You want underrated?
Here it is. Not the best soundboard but this is a five and only five star show. This is literally the best GDTRFB ever. Play as loud as possible! Phil is prominent!
Subject: Got to be a better source than this one.....
Nixon made better recordings in '72
Subject: it really isn't THAT bad...
I have analog tapes that I listened to over & over that sounded a whole lot worse than the first part of this recording, so by comparison it's not all that bad. You can hear everyone on stage, it just sounds like your listening to it with ear plugs.
I have found every song--I'm up to PITB--to be played with the aplomb they gave to seemingly EVERY show in '72. The quality of the performance excuses the sound quality, so go ahead & LISTEN---it's ALL in the music...
Subject: Not that bad...
...after you axe the first 15 or so tracks! And thats too bad because its 72 and the band just would'nt disappoint. The sound just sucks for the first half- hissy, kinda distorted, and just plain uncomfortable to listen to. From Jack Straw though its a whole different story. Everything levels off and with the exception of some hiss things start to sound pretty good. Dark Star is really enjoyable with some nice groviness throughout and Brokedown is sweet as usual. I really like the Jack Straw and Big River is fun too. Theres a cut in Bobby McGee which might pull you back into reality but its forgiving.
Over all, this is pretty good when you get past the lousy sound in the beginning. I say get it- you should be happy you did!
If there were only the second set I would probably give it a 5. It's that good. Since this is the whole show I gotta give it a 3 since the first set is hard to listen to...
Subject: a better sounding version?
i used to have this on tape-a flawless-sounding soundboard...i know it exists out there? i got if from ron elner via tom norton i do believe. show=5 stars recording=3 stars
overall a four.
Subject: A Soaring Feeling Groovy Jam
My four stars are assigned solely to the Dark Star.
If nothing else, you simply must check out the Feeling Groovy Jam in the DS, from about 18:10 to 20:40. There's a fair amount of hiss, but even so, I've been listening to it over and over. Thanks to whoever inserted the seven second-long splice at 20:08.
Soon after the ultra-happy FG jam, things get decidedly dark and scary. Chilling stuff. Download at least this one great song!
dirty jev-o -
Subject: poor quality
kinda bummed when you check out these shows no one has reviewed hoping for a jewel in the rough....no such luck here.......pretty low quality
